The technical and sporting specifications of the GP3 Series Championship in summary
GP3 Series - Arden Motorsport
The Series has been designed to make it the perfect driver training ground, not only for GP2, but also for Formula One™.
2016 sees the introduction of the third generation car. The GP3/16 has a brand new Mecachrome bespoke design engine, revised aerodynamics and updates electronics.
Using the same chassis, engine and tyre suppliers, all young drivers must showcase their skills both in speed and in managing tyres, just like they will have to do when they move up the motor sport ladder. And with two races per weekend and reverse grids, these skills will prove crucial in the battle to become GP3’s champion.
All nine events on the calendar will be part of the Formula One™ support package giving drivers’ first-hand experience of racing in the Grand Prix environment and gaining the coveted F1 exposure.
The Series makes its maiden trip to Sepang in Malaysia, which will provide yet another exciting challenge. Yas Marina completes the second of two successive flyaway events making it a truly global experience.
GP3 is partnered with some of the best brains in the motor sport business, such as Dallara and Pirelli, ensuring the series is constantly evolving and, along with all dedicated partners, creates a feeder series that stays ahead of the game and is technologically advanced whilst remaining affordable.
The series benefits from a professional and experienced organization to scrutineer the cars and oversee the running of all GP3 events, while FOM’s unparalleled expertise in the broadcasting and marketing of the GP3 Series™ ensures that it has truly global reach and appeal.
